"An Old CD... / Takao Station, Ginza Exhibitions, Chuo Line, Etc."

The passage of time is much in mind this evening - an old CD not listened to for a decade appeared in my hand while going through a dusty pile of old things.  Listening to it now... it's really amazing how many feelings come back with an old CD often listened to in an intense chapter of one's life, and then not listened to at all for around 15 years.  There are other factors as well.  In the 1990's, recordings were high quality, but not as artificial as some more recent stuff?  Not sure about that one, but the sound quality seems more real to me in a way.

Well - by the time I've written the above while listening to it - I've gotten over the nostalgia rush and have come back to 2012.  Okay - time to introduce another batch of video clips:

In-between the usual Tokyo train scenes are a few Kyobashi/Ginza art exhibitions/installations.  There's also a walk across a section of Ginza in the evening and a few views out around Takao Station.  The video titles explain the content fairly well (I hope) - with the exception of "Tokyo Station Temporary Bus Area" of which more than half is walking through busy Tokyo Station in the early evening (after walking past the temporary bus area).
